A teenager has appeared in court charged with dangling a toddler out of an Edinburgh tower block window.

Bradley Gilhooley is accused of holding the 17-month-old boy more than 30ft above the ground at Fort House in Fort Street, Leith, on 12 May.

Gilhooley, 17, from Edinburgh, appeared in private on petition at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Wednesday charged with culpable and reckless conduct.

He made no plea and was released on bail.

He was bailed on the condition he does not approach Fort House or anyone aged under 16.

The case has been continued for further examination.
